not really... it is the thing everyone covets mostly.

mike, to try to make it short (and some people know it's not easy with me) ....

i agree that both WINTER 2010 menswear and womenswear share a certain aesthetics, but to me menswear is much more urban-edgy than womenswear (that is pretty 'primitive'), so i think a seperated campain makes sense.
and on another point, i think miuccia is right to do different campains with different vision as men are more and more a unique commercial target. so that wouldn't make sense to me to create a similar campain ...

and if Miuccia has decided to do that (while she used to do a shared storyboard for men and women), it means to me that something has changed ... i just try to understand that.

so i think i disagree with you on the main subject.

Then I guess I am the only one who would be happier if everything could be perfect. I am sure he is very happy with the way he looks. He seems to be.

no, alber hates the way he looks. he thinks he looks like a clown. he just thinks he should not try to correct that because he creates his genius work from the perspective of an outsider. he's afraid that he if goes the marc jacobs' route and involves himself in the very lifestyle he fantasizes about in his sketches, he'll lose the creative impetus.

lots of creative people have this conflict. it's a false conflict, but they have to arrive to it themselves.

great. we can agree to disagree. while us fashion folk may notice the differences between the mens' and womens' campaigns, i don't think the consumer at large would. also, i feel that the two campaigns she delivered this time lack focus altogether. they're great images, but they don't have a message. that's why i say perhaps the challenge of combining these two collections might force her to settle on an actual message.

Why would it be a false conflict? It might an entirely correct stance for some.

Can we please stay on topic ?

The Prada Menswear campaign isn't the place to discuss the personal issues of Alber Elbaz.

I don't know how to extract the campaign from a flash site, but the entire campaign is on the Prada website. Can someone extract the files?

I have to admit, its not very interesting. Most of the shots are with one model against a black backdop. Last season was much better.

^^^ Thanks!

I still think Slimane could have gone with something a little more interesting, don't you think?
